Agent Orange fast track claims processing system

Welcome to the Agent Orange Fast Track Claims Processing System.

This website is dedicated to processing claims for Vietnam Veterans who are claiming service connection for any of the following conditions:

• Ischemic Heart Disease.

• Hairy Cell and other B-Cell Leukemias.

• Parkinson’s Disease.

You can use this website to apply for disability benefits for these conditions if you served in the Republic of Vietnam or inland waterways between Jan. 9, 1962, and May 7, 1975.

Fast Track has many features to expedite the claims process.

• You can submit an application for benefits and evidence supporting your claim.

• You can view your claim status.

• You can view a list of evidence VA has received.

• Your physician can submit evidence online.

• You can also send hardcopy evidence to the Fast Track Claims Processing System.

Medical providers

You can support the veteran’s application for benefits by completing a disability benefits questionnaire for their claimed condition. It will take approximately 15 minutes to complete the questionnaire online.

These questionnaires provide details of the claimed condition and are used to evaluate the severity of the condition. Your help in completing these questionnaires is essential in providing medical evidence to complete the Fast Track Claims Process.

You can also mail or fax other medical evidence in support of the veteran’s claim. See Contact Fast Track for more information, or this office.
